KANSAS CITY, Mo.  — Two people are in critical condition following a crash that took place around 2:26 a.m. Wednesday in Kansas City, Missouri, after a driver fled police.

After spotting a traffic violation, police attempted to pull over a Toyota Rav4 near 18th Street and Cleveland Avenue, according to the Kansas City, Missouri, Police Department. The driver refused to stop and fled at high speed.
